For the past two and a half months, as part of Vassana Cultivation members and devotees led by the Venerables at Ti-Sarana, have been practising the Metta Bhavana, the Meditation of Loving Kindness to permeate loving kindness to all sentient beings. In a few weeks’ time, Kathina and Robes Offering will be held for members and devotees to offer robes, 8-requisites or other gifts to the Maha Sangha to reciprocate their guidance and dissemination of the Dhamma to us.
All members and devotees are invited to the Blessing of Holy Water Service on 25th Oct (Eve of Kathina) and to the Kathina Ceremony on 26th Oct 2008 (Sun.). We look forward to your presence.
